    So I have this 'friend' I've gotten close to over the last year, however I'm starting to realise she may just be an acquintance. For instance she's always on her phone either talking or texting whenever we're let's say walking together and only seems to acknowledge my existence when she doesn't have anybody else. The one thing that irritates me is that she tries to be everybody's friend and spreads herself so thin. I truly believe that a friend to all is a friend to none. We'll be walking together and we see person A she knows and before you know it she has disappeared and gone over to person A. I find this odd and I don't know if I want to be friends with someone like that. I'm a very blunt person and very much of an open book, if I don't want anything to do with you you'll know.
    What's the best way to approach this?. I don't want to be mean or rude. Should I distance myself?. What would you do?.

    Just tell her it's rude when she ditches you like that. Or when she spends all her time on her phone when you meet up. Tell her that and then see how she reacts, if she has a temper tantrum and refuses to change her behaviour then you might have to part, but it's better to compromise. You can't have too many friends imo.

    I agree I think its rude to ditch you, but then ask her about your friendship. sat you expect more and at the moment she just seems to be an aquaintance, so you will spend less time with them in future.

    I disagree with your thread title. You sound a bit jealous.
